Started by a father and son duo in 1990, Crepe Guys offers a taste of French cuisine and international flavors in a fast and casual environment. A little over three months ago they moved to the Northeast side of Indy near Castleton Mall and business seems to be doing pretty well. I’m a huge crepe fan and was really looking forward to testing this restaurant out.
After being greeted and asked if I wanted something savory or sweet they made a few suggestions about what I might like. I have to give it to them for their menu options, they’ve got over 30 crepes to choose from and even a special section devoted to ingredients that kids will like. I’m tempted to go back and try their macaroni w/cheese crepe.
I went with the suggested Chicken Milano which was the first crepe on the menu. It includes parmesan and ricota cheese, grilled chicken, fresh spinach and red pepper pesto sauce.
You can watch as your personal crepe is prepared or go ahead and take a seat and they’ll bring the prepared meal out to you.
While I was impressed with the speed and portion size of the crepe, I was a little disappointed in the taste. I felt it was lacking in flavor and compared to other crepes I’ve had in the area, it just didn’t measure up. Maybe my expectations were set too high or maybe I just need to go back and try something different.
The interior was kind of a strange mix of modern, industrial and rustic and most of the light was coming through the front window making the back portion seem a little dark. There was some nice ambiance created by the soft music and there is plenty of available seating. There is even a bar with stools located up front along the window if you want a view of the outside.
They had a little portable cart set up that looked like it might be used for demonstrations or to fix part of the meal at the customers table.
I did like that they include comment cards and pens on each table so guests can leave a review and list any suggestions they might have for improvement.
I might give Crepe Guys a second chance, but as of now the winning crepes in the Indy area still belong to 3 Days in Paris. Crepe Guys shouldn’t be discounted though and it is affordable with all crepes marked under $10. If you’re in the Castleton area and are looking for a fast meal with a french flair, then stop in to Crepe Guys and decide for yourself who would win in a crepe off.
